Tropical Depression #2 is strengthening ever so slightly out at sea, but could soon turn into Tropical Storm Ana.

It's about this time in early to mid-August that the Hurricane Center and National Weather Service start to constantly monitor whats at sea, as do people along the coast.

We caught up with some in Carteret County already preparing for hurricane season, even with no named storms as of yet. They say the key is to not become complacent.

Emergency Management Officials say you should already have a hurricane kit prepared -- complete with food, water, batteries and a flashlight.

    Use the severe weather to teach your kids the science behind it. Have them make a Tornado Tube or Hurricane in a Bottle! http://weirdsciencekids.com/hurricanceinabottle.html

    The only thing we have to fear is fear itself...and Sarah Palin.
